I could not have asked for a better person to sell with.

"125 Bank Street, South Melbourne
this agent was a pleasure to deal with and always communicated clearly and responsively to any questions or issues that I had. We wanted to sell and this agent along with her work College Scott Belsey achieved this on auction day at a very good market price. The negotiation capability they showed was 2nd to none.
I would highly recommend this agent and the Hocking Stuart team Albert Park and would be confident that you will get the best market price"
"Hi this agent and Scott,
Just wanted to say thank you again for all your hard work over the past few weeks and the weekend (and for the lovely flowers and card which turned up today). We were very pleased with the outcome, and impressed with the way you conducted the sale campaign / auction.
I said to Josephine (when we were hiding in the mailroom) I hope the directors at Hocking Stuart realise how intelligent you both are and value your hard work. If not, you would both do well setting up your own business. We'll certainly recommend you!
Courtney and Brendan"
"I have had the absolute pleasure of working with this agent over the past 2 months selling my home at 131 Cruikshank Street Port Melbourne. As I now live in Far North Queensland the priority for me was to find an agent that I trusted. Kendal was my eyes and ears over the past 2 months.
this agent professional approach and efficiency lead to an extremely satisfying result, with a very positive outcome for both myself and the respective new owners of my property.
I cannot speak highly enough of this agent and would have no hesitation in recommending her services to anyone who is seeking to list their property for successful outcome.
Thank you this agent .
"Hi this agent ,
I know it's taken me a while to do this, but I just wanted to write to you and say thank you for all you did to achieve a great result on the sale of our home.
As you know, we spoke to several agents when we decided to sell our home and the decision to choose you above the others was an easy one. And I'm so glad with our choice!
The idea of having to present your home to potential buyers multiple times every week was very daunting. The thought of having to get things ready for viewing while taking care of a new baby was extremely stressful. But you made the whole process so much easier.
From the moment we chose you as our agent, your eagerness to assist as well as your decorator/legal contacts and commitment to all areas of the selling process was exceptional. You helped us find a good solicitor, as well as helping us to arrange essential renovations within 2 weeks. We could not have been ready to go on the market at the time we did without your wonderful assistance in this area.
And I must of course mention the brilliant result that was achieved on auction day. As expected, auction day is very stressful, but you and the auctioneer helped us to keep relaxed and talked us through our strategy so that we felt better for understanding what would be happening on the day. You helped us to achieve a wonderful result that has allowed us to move forward with the next stage of our lives and we are so grateful for this.
this agent , please feel free to pass this onto prospective sellers considering you as their agent so that they can make an informed and smart decision for the sale of their own home. Thank you again for all of your hard work, and you will no doubt have a long and rewarding career in the real estate industry.
Kate & Paul"
"this agent was absolutely terrific to deal with in the sale of my property, G8/221 Sturt St, Sth Bank. We originally engaged another agent who was unable to present a single interested party to us over a two month period despite an expensive marketing and auction campaign.
Having seen that this agent had sold another apartment in the building at the same time, I called her and she immediately made herself available to meet and gave some really valuable insights into the market.
Within 3 weeks, this agent took three interested parties through our property and generated two excellent offers for us despite working without a marketing campaign or the property being listed on the Internet.
I was exceptionally impressed with this agent 's efficiency and willingness to go out of her way to make things happen quickly and easily. She always followed through on promises and was really genuine and honest in her approach. I really felt as though she had my best interests at heart the whole time.
I couldn't recommend this agent highly enough, it was a seamless process because of her control and expertise.
Thanks again, as you can see we are very pleased vendors!! Great result.
"Hi this agent ,
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for assisting with the recent sale of my apartment at 88 Park St.
The thought of having to go through the process of selling was extremely stressful before meeting you. I met a couple of other agents earlier in the piece and couldn't believe how much they really didn't care. One just kept giving me the sales pitch and the other took 3 days to call me back after leaving a message that I wanted to make an appointment. I really appreciate you coming to my work and speaking to me like a human being and not just treating me like a number. You took the time to understand my situation and actually had 'real' statistics and property sales comparisons to prove that you knew what you were doing and that you were in the best possible position to understand how to market my property to get the best result possible.
Being a bit of a control freak that I am :-) I had prepared myself for a month of stress and running around and had no idea how I was going to make everything happen around work. I was sure I'd be driving back and forth from my property to check on things. I didn't go there once. The photos were great, the furniture you organised looked great, you updated me every day and you absolutely went above and beyond by dropping by to ensure my main power switch was turned off so I could get electricity re-connected with no problems.
I wish I could better put in to words how much I appreciate your help.
You are professional, enthusiastic, empathetic, hardworking, respectful and not afraid to take on a challenge.
It's great to see someone who has been in the industry for many years, still have the passion and drive that you only see at the beginning of some peoples' careers.
this agent you are an absolute asset to Hocking Stuart and I have absolutely no doubt that I would be spending this time sitting here stressing and swearing about a possible failure of an auction coming up had I gone with another agent.
As you know I work in Recruitment which I feel is very similar. You can be a lazy worker and put an ad online and wait for people to come to you (as most Recruiters and Sales Agents do in my opinion) or you can be hungry and go out and FIND candidates/buyers. This is what you did! Selling within 9 days with a 2 week settlement is a better outcome that I could have ever imagined. I know you had other properties to sell at the same time too, but not once did I ever feel this. You honestly made me feel like the only client you were working for.
I ask that you please forward this email on to your manager and feel free to pass on to any potential clients who want to make a fast and informed decision on which sales agent to go with to get the best service and the best outcome.
I will absolutely be recommending you to anyone I hear of who may be thinking of selling.
Thanks again this agent and I'm sure we will work together again one day :-)
Kind regards, Lauren Clark"
As a sales manager in a funds management firm, I immediately recognised this agent 's professional sales approach. this agent listened to our situation, demonstrated a genuine enthusiasm and coupled this with a strategy to position our apartment in the marketplace. This eventuated in this agent selling our apartment pre-auction using her database. This saved us a significant amount of marketing costs including commission as well as the usual auction anxiety. We are very happy with the outcome and wouldn't hesitate in recommending this agent to future property owners.
We looked at a few different agents before settling with this agent . I'm so glad we did right from the start this agent was very knowledgeable, professional, and diligent in helping us get the sale we wanted. We were always kept up-to-date with any viewings and she was available at all times to answer our queries. I would highly recommend this agent .
Yvonne and I would like to thank you for selling our two apartments in Melbourne and Southbank. We found your service and attention to detail impeccable and professional and everything you promised us actually happened, both apartments sold on the day and both reached over our reserve price. We will recommend you to our friends and family and anyone we speak to that may benefit from your service.
